Edit : I just realized that it meant the speed of the mount, sorry.Good blog post, though. :)
I demand a retroactive refund on my training and mount costs! Seriously though, not sure I like this idea but guess it could just be the whole "in my day I had to walk 10 miles, barefoot, in the snow, uphill..." sort of thing.
I kinda remembered the regular flying use to be 60%? Or was it 150% all the while?
O M G YESSSSSS! ty blizz :D
*!@#ing nerf fest, this is bull%^&*...
I want a Feat of Strength
This disappoints me. We already blow through the pre-Wrath zones while leveling at speeds that would make the USS Enterprise jealous--this is just going to make that worse. Eh. Blizzard, why oh why are you actively trying to make the previous content useless!
This makes me sad. I levelled my rogue back when mounts cost a lot more gold and were available at levels 40, 60, 70, and 70 respectively. And on top of that, I collected mounts.It looks like I wasted a healthy chunk of gold :(
Well, if it'll stop people from rolling DKs...
HALLALUJA! This is so freaking awesome! Now I can finally use a flying mount in outland while leveling, this is gonna make things so much easier.
Nice change, I think. I've got two alts, one 29 and the other 60. The mount change won't affect the 29 too much because it's right about to get a mount either way. But for the DK, it'll make getting to Northrend much easier.To celebrate this change, I'm going to make another alt. That level 20 mount will be used, dammit!
I figured a bunch of people will cry about this. Saying how they want their gold back. Why should all the newbs and noobs get their mounts earlier when they didn't.Now, do people whine about gas prices today and what they were 25 years ago? Yes, but does everyone want their money back. Minimum wage is a lot higher than it was 25 years ago as well. Same as in wow with how easy it is to get gold nowadays. Blizzard made this change since they see in the future that they do want to probably raise the level cap even more. Possibly to 100. Could you even imagine the horror you'd have to suffer through if you bought the game and had to level to 100 back in the old days. When level 40 was the mount requirement. It's a great business decision on their part and I love it. Now my many alts will get leveled.
